13 When those who were carrying the ark of the LORD had taken six steps, he sacrificed a bull and a fattened calf. 14 David, wearing a linen ephod, danced before the LORD with all his might, 15 while he and the entire house of Israel brought up the ark of the LORD with shouts and the sound of trumpets. 2 Samuel 6:13-15

“My warriors are going to the beat of my drums. They are dressed in the garb of my warfare. They are dancing out a song; it is a battle song.”

(I saw a group of Native American dancers who were dancing. They were right in front of me dressed in feathers and moccasins. They went to the beat of a song in the background. I sensed that they were preparing for battle.)

“I have chosen you for a time such as this. The battle rages all around you. Dance to the sound of my music. Hear the beat. Let it resonate in your spirits. Remember how David danced before me? Let the shackles fall and the chains be removed as you dance. The enemy flees when you dance before Me. Look to my word and you will find strategies for the battle times. Consider how David and Joshua came to Me first before they went to battle. But what is the type of dance that you would dance to Me? Would it be one of joyful remembrance of all the things I have done for you? Would it be a light-hearted song of melody and mirth? Yes, but I want you mainly to enter into a battle song. I want you to dance before Me more than you have ever done before. Then the enemy’s camps will be filled with dread and fear. “

Observe therefore all the commands I am giving you today, so that you may have the strength to go in and take over the land that you are crossing the Jordan to possess, Deuteronomy 11:8

12 'Wake up, wake up, Deborah! Wake up, wake up, break out in song! Arise, O Barak! Take captive your captives, O son of Abinoam.'Judges 5

“I am gathering my people from the four corners of the earth—from the north, east, west, and south. In those days, they will fight and they will win the battle. I am calling forth the Moses’ of this generation. I am equipping them with the staff of my covenant. I will give unto them signs and wonders to perform. They will stand before the Pharaohs of this generation. They will cross over. The horse and rider will fall into the sea. The song of Deborah will heard as well as the handmaidens are lifted up in this hour. Those who have been left alone and have been bereft will be given new consolation.”

“To my prophets and apostles of this generation I would say, ‘Do not get swept away by the coming flood.’ Do not fall into the traps of the world. Remember that if you would be a leader you must be a servant of all, for I came to serve and not to be served. There is much coming ahead for this world to experience. “

You say you have strategy and military strength—but you speak only empty words. On whom are you depending, that you rebel against me? Isaiah 36:5

He will respond to the prayer of the destitute; he will not despise their plea. 102:17

“I tell you that my name is to be honored above all names. From the east and the west, and from the north to the south, I AM to be honored. Why do the nations rage, and why must life go on as it does? “

“I tell you that night and day I AM watching over my people. I hear their pleas and I see their heartaches. Oh, that I would gather them up and hide them under my wings. Oh, that men and women would run to Me in their time of need. I find that people would rather run to a statue or an idea rather than to Me. Would you gather all your past hurts, your misgivings, your sorrows, your heartaches, and leave them at my feet? “

“Why must life go on as it does, you say? Why must there be wars? Why must there be murders? Why must life go on as it does in many places of the world?”

“I tell you that you are racing towards judgment. I tell you that the time is rapidly approaching. I tell you that the time is rapidly approaching for the sword to be lifted up in your nation of America. Where will you run to and where will you hide? Will you run to Me in your hour of need? What will your plan of strategy be? When the rocks begin to fall will you find shelter? Will your place of safety be strong? “

“Truly, I will protect my own. In their hour of need I will hear their plea. “

Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. I Peter 5:8

By night I went out through the Valley Gate toward the Jackal Well and the Dung Gate, examining the walls of Jerusalem, which had been broken down, and its gates, which had been destroyed by fire. Nehemiah 2: 13

(I have experienced attacks from the enemy at school and at home. The message below is one that I’m certain we have all faced and will perhaps, continue to face. We must solidify the walls of our homes and where we work.)

“Be on your guard my people, for your enemy prowls around like an angry lion, seeking whom he may devour. I say these things because the time is running short; for evil has increased and darkness has filled the earth. Be equipped my people, with the weapons of your warfare. Put on the whole armor of God. I tell you that you will prevail in these days; but you must realize that it is warfare on the deepest level. Do not think of things in the natural, but consider that they have a spiritual source. I tell you that it is time to anoint your homes and your place of businesses; for demonic forces are trying to find a way into your lives. Do not be left without protection. “

(The Lord showed me a house that was made out of stone. I was looking at a wall from the outside. On this side it was very dark and I saw that there was a gap in the wall where one could see into the home. Two dark figures saw this gap and were beginning to slide through the hole. They were demons. However, after one had tried to come in, he immediately came back out again. For on the inside of the home was an open Bible and the light from the word of God had caused it to fall back and flee. )

“I tell you that the enemy will find a crack or a crevice, and will slip into your homes. Solidify your walls, and apply mortar to them. “

Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings Psalm 17:8

For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his tabernacle and set me high upon a rock. Psalm 27:5

The Spirit of the Lord showed me a vision of the Great Shepherd. I saw this Shepherd dressed as any shepherd would be, but he was holding a lamb in his arms. The lamb became bigger and bigger, and eventually jumped out of the arms of the Master.It seemed that he no longer needed him because he had grown so large and was now independent of him. Then I saw two groups of sheep. He showed me one group that looked like sheep and the other group were goats. The goats were shownland and pasture that was far away from the shepherd. They were motioned to go to this place. There’s was a distant and rugged land, filled with rugged hills and land that was not fertile or green. The other group of sheep had stayed with the Shepherd. Then I was shown a tall cliff that seemingly went up and up. As I looked at it, my gaze was diverted downwards. As my gaze was looking downwards, I saw groups of people and campfires that were set in the cliffs at various points. At several junctures in the cliff there were groups of people who were seemingly camped out in the rocks. That had found safety there and this had become their home. The vision then faded…

“This is an example of how it will be in that day. I will separate the sheep from the goats. Some will find nourishment, but others will drink from dirty water. Some think that they can make it without Me. And then I tell you, I will hide my people in the clefts of the rock. They will find safety in those days. The disasters and the culminations of those days will not harm them. I will hide them in the cleft of the rock. “

To keep me from becoming conceited because of these surpassingly great revelations, there was given me a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. II Cor. 12:7
2Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. James 1

“I AM the God of the universe. I created the heavens and the earth and all things in it. Because of Me, kingdoms rise and fall—nations rise and some fall to the ground. I tell you that I AM in charge of everything that happens upon the earth, but I have allowed the prince of this present age to have limited power and domain. I allowed satan to do his work of folly for a time and a season. I allowed him to do his work with my servant Job. I allowed him to buffet and cause my servant Paul to have a thorn in the flesh. For these things had worked together for good. They developed the qualities that I had wanted in them. For trials and temptations can develop the character that I want in them. “

“There will always be trials and temptations while you are in your present bodies, but there are time constraints to these trials. I only allow them to last for a time. You are not tried or tested beyond your ability to withstand them. And it is only through my spirit that you can withstand them. For then in due season the fruit of my spirit emerges. Allow Me to do the work that is necessary. Then you will yield fruit abundantly.”

3And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. 4The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. 5For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus' sake. 2 Corinthians 4:3-5

“I tell you that this is a season of beginnings. Springtime is the season of new beginnings, and I tell you that I am birthing new things in my people in this time. I am birthing new giftings. Look for these things, for they will come into your lives. There will be an added dimension of your spirit to be able to see into the things of the enemy. Gone are the months of toil. Gone are those things that wasted your spirit away. My Bride will put on these things so that she can stand against the enemy in these last days. “

(The Lord showed me someone who wanted to see into the things of the spirit, but there were evil-looking hands that came from behind this person, thus, disabling the person from seeing. These hands completely covered this person’s face so that they could not “see.” But then the hands were removed, and I saw a hooded figure without eyes and without a face.)

You will see into the enemy’s devices and ways. Many have not had their eyes upon Me, and thus, they have been blinded to the ways of the enemy. Remove those things from your lives that have been a hindrance to Me. Then you will see and the blinders will be taken from your eyes. “

Lift up a banner against the walls of Babylon! Reinforce the guard, station the watchmen, prepare an ambush! The LORD will carry out his purpose, his decree against the people of Babylon. Jer. 51:12

“I tell you that there are many people within the body of Christ who think that the outcome of many of the nations of the world will be given new hope and freedom in the coming years. I tell you that there are difficult days ahead. I tell you that there are dangerous things at work. There are some who promise exemption from these things. There are some who give false hope to the people.”

“I tell you that surely I am a God of hope, but I don’t want you to be ignorant of what lies ahead. My people, this is soon to be the time of the beginning of sorrows. The book is being opened that will pour these libations upon the earth. It is all a part of my prophetic time table. “

“I will bring many of my people to places of safety. I will be a sure defense against the enemy. I will protect my own in the coming months and years. There will be places of safety provided for you. There are already plans of work for this now. The world is in a spirit of chaos and this will continue. Do you want the truth given to you or a lie from the enemy? “

“There are some who prophesy wonderful things that are coming. They speak of delusions from their own spirits. Surely, they will be judged, and surely, they will be held accountable for what they have said. There are different types of “words” and there are different types of prophets. Surely, I do have good things to say. Surely, I do want to bring hope, but surely, I do want you to be prepared and not to be ignorant for what lies ahead. Be ye filled with my spirit, and let wisdom guard your hearts and souls for the coming months and years. “

(I believe that this may be a personal word, but it certainly has application to all who seek the path that God would want them to take. His ways are not our ways, for they are higher than ours. They are above our ways. While the paths that we take are not always easy ones, we may be assured that they are designed for us.)

My steps have held to your paths; my feet have not slipped. Psalm 17:5

Show me your ways, O LORD, teach me your paths;Psalm 25:4

Many peoples will come and say, "Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his paths." The law will go out from Zion, the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. Isaiah 2:3

“Come to the mountain and listen to Me, says the Lord. For I have many things to reveal to you. The road is steep, but it has been traveled before. Listen to the hush and the stillness that fills the air. There is the sound of small birds and other animals around you. Continue up the path with your eye upon the peak in front of you. There is a fragrance in the air. Sit upon the bench provided for you here. Gaze upon the distant hills and valleys below. You will notice that there is a haze and darkness that fills the land. There is a slumber that has filled the heads of many of the people below. Get up from your place and continue your walk on up the mountain. Watch where your feet are now walking because the path now becomes rocky. Now, you will notice that there is a “Y” in the road. You will notice there are footprints that have led in the pathway that leads to the right. Many have gone that way for it is the easier path. But when you begin your journey on the left side, you will see that it is designed for you. There will be subtle things that will help you to realize this. As you continue on this road, you will now see the crest of the mountain right in front of you. Evening is approaching and the light is changing all around you. Rest, for the journey will continue. “

Don't grumble against each other, brothers, or you will be judged. The Judge is standing at the door! James 5:9

1Brothers, I could not address you as spiritual but as worldly—mere infants in Christ. 2I gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for it. Indeed, you are still not ready. 3You are still worldly. For since there is jealousy and quarreling among you, are you not worldly? Are you not acting like mere men? 1 Co. 3:1-3

As we know, the enemy uses division as a means of disrupting the unity within the body of Christ. We must look at what we share in common, and not become split over issues which are of minor consequence. Below this word is one from about ten years ago, which outlined some of the same concerns. A civil was has come upon the church. How can we battle the enemy if the battle is within our own people?

“The sun will shine, but darkness has infiltrated the light upon the earth. I tell you that a spiritual darkness is descending upon the land. For a great civil war has begun within the church. For brother is divided against brother over petty issues. For the very doctrines that you propose as good have become stumbling blocks and dividing issues. What are the things you share in common? My bride has become split into many factions. For one has said,’ Let us do it this way,’ and yet another has said,’ No, this is the way.’ “

Stephen Hanson



"I have been observing My Church ever since I made her. I brought her through the time of the early church fathers, and I made her more holy through the Reformation. There have been movements and restoration times over the centuries, but what is happening to my Body now? There is bickering and back-biting as though there were toddlers in a playpen fighting over toys.

I see this everywhere. How are you to come unto maturity? How can you taste solid food when you are drinking milk? Grow up and act like my bride should. Be innocent as doves, but be wise in your thinking. How can you be salt in this world when you're fighting among yourselves?

You say, "I am a Baptist, I am a Nazarene, I am a Lutheran, a Methodist, a Pentecostal, a Charismatic, or an Independant, to name but a few."

What do you have in common? What do you have that can bring you closer together? Is my Body going to work together as one? You have all become "Islands unto yourselves." Come together under my banner, otherwise, this world system will cause you to drift further and further apart. I am coming back for My Bride, and want her to be ready and dressed in white. Let me purify your garments, and get rid of the stains that your fighting has caused."

Stephen Hanson

{This past Saturday the Lord impressed upon me that it was a time of rest for his eagles, and this is true. We all need to lay down the weapons of our warfare, and to simply find our rest in Him. However, the full counsel of the Lord encompasses not just one aspect of His will. After the time of rest, there is preparedness in store. Having said that, today’s message then comes to the forefront. What will you do? Let us not scoff, but be made ready for those days that lie ahead, whatever may come. }

15. A day of wrath is that day, a day of distress and anguish, a day of ruin and devastation, a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and thick darkness, Zephaniah 1:15

“I tell you that the end of the age is soon upon the entire earth. You have witnessed the fury that has been seen in nature. You have seen entire cities ravaged and people searching through the debris. The loss of life has been astronomical. You have seen this in the south. You have seen this in the north, and say that you will soon see this on the west coast. “

“Woe to those who say that we are protected. Woe to those who scoff at these things. I tell you that time is but a short thing. You search Me out but many of you do not find Me. You have your own agendas. I tell you that it is time to seek “safe ground.” Where will you be safe when the devastation comes? What type of defense will save you at that time? Surely, those who call upon my name will be saved at that time. I tell you that the Great Cleansing is coming--that event that has been spoken of by many; and yet many think that it is but a dream. What will you do when your world is turned upside down? What will you do?”

Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one may fail by following their example of disobedience. Hebrews 4:11

Mat 11:28 "Come to me, all of you who are weary and loaded down with burdens, and I will give you rest.

Isa 40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”

“I tell you that the eagles need to find their nests in order to rest again. From flying this way and that, from searching out the camp of the enemy, and for the many battles that they have faced, a time of rest is in order. “

“Go find that place, high among the cliffs, where you have gone to before. There you will find nourishment for your souls. There you will find rest from the labor. And then when you return to your work, you have been given rest and new strength. “

“Everyone that comes to Me must come to Me in purity of speech. Cast aside your anxious spirits. Lay down all your concerns and misgivings before Me, and then you will be renewed like the eagles. “

“so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” Isaiah 55:11

Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. I Peter 5:8

(The Lord showed me a scene again of the owl. This time I saw a faint figure of an owl that was sitting upon a branch in front of me. As it gazed at me, I saw another figure below me of an archer who was releasing an arrow into the sky. The arrow left his bow and the owl began to fly with it. The bird seemed to fly as fast as the arrow was released, but the second time that the arrow was released it was fused with flames of fire. This fire propelled the arrow swiftly through the air. The messenger of the owl could not out-fly it.)

“I tell you that the owl is waiting in hiding. He is watching whom he can devour. He is wicked beyond belief. He waits whom he can devour. He has attempted to run with the messages that the prophets have spoken of in this hour. But he cannot keep up with my Holy Spirit. There is nothing that can keep up with my spirit. But I tell you that you will run and not be weary. The messages that are sent out by my archers in this hour will hit their targets. So I say, swiftly run and fly. Let my messages be sent out throughout the world. Let the flames of my Holy Spirit encamp round about you. “

“Speak in my name and it will be made so. I tell you, I am resurrecting a new word in my prophets in this hour. My word will be infused with power. Speak into existence those things that are not, and then my word will come unto fruition.”

8The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.” John 3

“I say, my children, keep your ears open to those things around you. Listen to my spirit in the deep parts of the inner man. For those of you who do hear my voice, I will prick your ears so that you will hear much better. You will need my guidance more and more in the coming days. For the winds are blowing in many things, but you must be careful with how you understand the effects of these winds upon you. For with the winds of change, many things can affect your spirit. Be as a tall oak tree that has stood the test of many seasons. How many of you have been blown this way and that? How many of you have been swayed by the spirit of this age? I tell you that there are things coming that neither a meteorologist nor a scientist will have any idea about. For the weather will take on drastic changes. Watch and wait and stand firm in your resolve. Let your roots sink fully into the ground. Be as a strong oak tree.”

Amid disquieting dreams in the night, when deep sleep falls on men, Job 4:13

Like a dream he flies away, no more to be found, banished like a vision of the night. Job 20:8

(This is the second time that the Lord has spoken to me concerning the owl. Last week I was given a vision and message about this same thing. I believe that the enemy is attempting to use the darkness and night hours, to entice and use dreams and visions to get some of the prophets off course. We know that he works in this manner. May we be careful and heed these warnings. There is a distinct and sometimes, subtle difference between the visions and dreams that the Lord shares with us, and those that would come from the enemy. I pray that our discernment would be sharpened and that we would know that we know that we know what is true and what is not.)

“I tell you that the “owl” is secretly at work behind the scenes. He is an agent sent by the enemy. It flies alone during the evening hours. It would attempt to awaken the ears of the prophets. It would entice them of dreams and visions of other things. I say, beware of the hours after nightfall. These are things that will prove to be a necessity for you. You must guard your hearts and keep them safe from these things. Would you be enticed to follow another light? Would you be enticed to follow this secret type of wisdom? I say, beware. “

6 I have posted watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem; they will never be silent day or night. You who call on the LORD give yourselves no rest, Isaiah 62:6

For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. 2 Thess. 2:7

(The Lord showed me a vision of a bird that was flying across the sky. I looked and noticed as this bird moved its head towards me---it was an owl. Its eyes looked right towards me.)

“I tell you that another bird is flying in the sky at this hour. It is a different type of bird in this hour. It travels secretly at night. I tell you that it is the eyes of the enemy. It is a foul and secretive flight that it takes. It is seeking whom it can devour. It is an emissary of the enemy. I tell you that the enemy always travels at night or in darkness, but my light will reveal all of those hidden places. Under the clouds of the sky at night, he hides in waiting. The enemy is attempting to get my prophets off-track. I tell you that he is trying all that he can in this hour to do this thing. What kind of bird are you, I say, in this hour? Do you travel alone or with others of your kind in a flock? When you are alone you are more easy prey for the enemy. I have called watchmen for this hour and some are called for the lonely night hours. You will be a sure defense against the owl that travels by night. “

16To the one we are the smell of death; to the other, the fragrance oflife. And who is equal to such a task? 17Unlike so many, we do notpeddle the word of God for profit. On the contrary, in Christ we speakbefore God with sincerity, like men sent from God. 2 Corinthians2:16-18

"There are many voices in this hour. Some are vying to be heard, butmy true prophets seek not to be heard; they merely speak my wordwithout compromise. Many have their "pet prophecies." They areknown by them. They are an "ear-mark" to their prophecies."

"I tell you that in the days ahead there will be many who disagreeabout these things. But there is one thing in common with those whotruly know Me-each has their own mandate from Me. "

"You who have your own prophetic speech-is it coming from your owndesire to be heard, or are you merely speaking my word? This year willsee the fall of many prophetic ministries. Are you trying to benewsworthy? "
